It's not uncommon to see graffiti almost everywhere, but one of the main differences I saw was the use of stenciling and paper cutouts (the little boy on the right is a pasted paper cut out). Graffiti was fairly prolific and stencils are one of the easiest ways to reproduce an image and a message multiple times across the city. One of the contemporary art museums ended up having an exhibition for this specific group of stencil artists. They created a map with names and locations for all of their stencils around the city. This is one of them.
